It took a few days to create the first table. Because the ground is so far away, our new Raised railroad was going to be at the height of 39 inches. The major challenge was how to support the table. The ground was too hard for us to dig, so we put the table support posts in buckets andded fencepost cement. This method turned out to be a great solution, and it is not perminate. It turned out to be a very strong support system. As soon as the first table was put up it rained for a couple of days.
